FPC Northville Elders
Elders and Deacons


Ruling and teaching elders exercise leadership, government, spiritual discernment, and discipline and have responsibilities for the life of the congregation.  The ministry of Deacons, as set forth in scripture, is that of compassion, witness, and service, sharing in the redeeming love of Jesus Christ.


Have you ever wondered what the Deacon Corner is and who are those people that are there every Sunday?

The Deacons of our Beloved church take turns getting to know the congregation.  We provide prayer support for our assigned families and we make ourselves available for home and hospital visits.  For those in need of a little extra care, we can arrange for meals or to be available for a telephone conversation.  We can drop off flower bouquets to brighten up someone’s day or provide communion for homebound members and/or non-members.  All you have to do is ask.  You may have had a Deacon reach out to you in the past.  If we hear of a possible need, we may contact you.  There is no obligation but to know we are praying for you and your loved ones during good times and times of need.

Stop by and ask “Who is my Deacon”?  You might just be surprised.

For more information, please contact our church office or stop by after services and we can direct you to your Deacon or answer any other questions.  

Peace and Joy to you and your family. 

The Deacons
